Great to see the Tavern busy on Sunday night. Clean & modern decor. Family friendly. Enjoyed a sensational Nepalese Lamb Curry - it was so good!!!

The Iluka Tavern is one of only a couple of dinner options in Coles Bay. The food was ok. Good range and daily specials. They have kids meals and a kids play area.

Nice quiet spot (in winter anyway), staff were lovely. Had a little indoor playground for the kids. The lunch we had here was very good as was the sunny seat by the widows. Highly recommend
